Default '42 Ford V-12 Frankenhearse

Well it started out as a military ambulance. Stretched 34 inch to use as an ambulance. I stretched it 32 in more to add the GMC V-12. Has power steering and hydro boost brakes. 9 inch 31 spline ford rear end. Has an Allison transmission, 6 speed. Posies made a new set of leaf springs for the front. Wiring harness due in soon. Had to buy a special harness for the Allison trans. Wilwood brakes, 4 piston, front and rear. The fun has begun.
